My partner and I had a fantastic time aboard the California last night. It was exactly what I had been searching for for a romantic evening together. Everything was impeccable: the staff were friendly, professional, and genuinely seemed as if they wanted to make sure we were having a good time. Julian, our server, was exceptional and paced our dishes well. We really enjoyed the mix of both DJ music for dancing and classical music for dining. We'll definitely tell our friends about the lovely time we had and are going to try a daytime cruise next! Very well done, Hornblower.

Our server, Dorothy, was amazing! She was attentive and very welcoming. Some servers are only interested in taking orders and dropping off food, but Dorothy talked to us and made us feel special! The atmosphere is also amazing. There's nothing like being on the California Hornblower and eating a delicious meal under the Golden Gate Bridge!
